AD is pleased to announce that Ben Brumfield joined the company as President of AD Member Supply, effective March 6.
AD Member Supply, AD’s U.S. warehousing program, helps AD members consolidate spending and increase efficiency through redistribution, bulk purchase and private label operations. AD Member Supply achieved record sales in 2022.
Brumfield most recently held the position of Senior Vice President of Global Sales and Marketing for AD supplier company FyterTech Nonwovens. He also spent over a decade with AD supplier ORS Nasco in multiple leadership roles with increasing responsibilities. Throughout his career, Brumfield has served on multiple AD committees and industry councils.
“AD plays an important role for independent distributors by supporting the growth and sustainability of their business,” Brumfield said. “I have seen firsthand the power of the AD community and the tremendous work that AD associates accomplish, and I am grateful and excited to join the team to support AD’s mission.”
As President, Brumfield will oversee AD Member Supply. Brumfield will partner closely with the AD Member Supply Steering Committee and Divisional Board on strategy development and future growth. He succeeds George Graham, former President of AD Member Supply, who will retire at the end of March.
“AD Member Supply provides an incredibly valuable service to our members by offering flexibility and convenience in their purchasing and shipping operations,” said Marisol Fernandez, President of the Electrical and Industrial Business Unit. “Thanks to the leadership and guidance of George Graham, AD Member Supply has achieved significant growth in recent years. Ben’s leadership experience makes him the perfect fit to guide the program forward and help us continue to meet our community’s needs. He brings a wealth of experience to the role and has shown a true passion for the AD community and the industries we serve.”
